Police on Sunday busted a human trafficking racket and rescued five teenagers from the Rangia railway station in lower Assam's Kamrup district, when they were about to board a train for New Delhi.

On suspicion, police questioned the children, which included a girl, along with their escort Basir Ali when they were about to board a New Delhi-bound train, sources said.
Interrogation revealed that the children were being taken for human trafficking, they said.
The children, aged between 13 to 15 years and belonging to the tribal and minority communities, were lured to Delhi on the promise of jobs, they said.
They were later handed over to their guardians following identification.
